Montreal mummies set to reveal secrets

Montreal's Redpath Museum has a trio of ancient Egyptians mummies, two female and one male. Now the trio have been sent to the Montreal Neurological Institute for a high-tech scan for a project run by the University of Western Ontario.

"This individual had quite poor dentition even though he was fairly young and it looks like they did some - a little dental work on him which is quite rare in ancient Egypt," says Andrew Nelson, of Western about one of the bodies.
